Liberian Designers: The More You Know, The Better


Imagine walking into an event wearing a jaw-dropping Liberian outfit.   You can hear the crowd whispering in the back, you know they are talking about your outfit.  Then, someone screams out of the crowd, “Who’s the designer?”  And you replied, “Yapawolo.”

 I haven’t heard of a designer by the name of Yapawolo, Yapawolo is just a name I threw out there, but the truth of the matter is, few years ago, we didn’t know the names behind the amazing Liberian designs, honestly, that was the least of our concerns.  Today, the story has changed; we are becoming aware of the names, labels, and major events that are happening within the Liberian fashion industry.  We now have the Liberian Fashion Week, Monrovia Fashion week, Liberian Fashion Award and many more.  Over the last few years, the Liberian fashion industry has made a tremendous leap and it is soaring international. 

Now, you know there is no way on God’s green earth; I’m going to keep such vital information from my fans.  I had to get the names of the who’s who and what’s what of the Liberian fashion industry. I had the opportunity to spend few hours on the phone with the Fashion Guru of Liberia, Mrs. Junda Morris-Kennedy, the CEO of JMK Fashion Production/ JMK Publicist.  Mrs. Morris-Kennedy, a proud producer/CEO of http://www.daytonfashionweek.com/html/about_us.html, in all her infinite knowledge about the Liberian fashion industry, took the time to produce for me a list of all the Liberian designers that are hitting the spotlight.
